Rx Optical, Michigan’s leading eye care provider, announced today that they are opening a new office location at 900 E. Michigan Ave. in Saline, Michigan. The new 2,500-square-foot facility will begin seeing patients as of July 1. The decision to build a new office location was in response to a need to accommodate for Rx Optical’s growing patient base across the east side of the state.
This is Rx Optical’s 55th location across Michigan and Indiana. It’s also the third location in Washtenaw County. The other two offices are located in the Ann Arbor area. Rx Optical worked with AE Design Solutions of Jackson, Michigan for this build.
The new Saline location will provide eye exams, eye glass fittings, medical patient care, eye care solutions for adults and children, contact lens fitting, and frame adjustments and repairs. Rx Optical manufactures all lenses at their state-of-the-art lab located in Kalamazoo. Because Rx Optical does not outsource production of lenses, their team is able to provide quick turnaround and unmatched quality control.
“Saline has seen incredible growth in recent years, with many new homes, retail outlets, unique restaurants, and great schools,” said George Jepson, Rx Optical Vice President of Marketing. “Saline is an ideal area for Rx Optical, and we look forward to serving a patient base that we feel is currently being underserved when it comes to optometric care and eyewear. We are also a proud sponsor of the Foundation for Saline Area Schools, so we already feel connected to this wonderful community.”
Founded in Kalamazoo in 1947, Rx Optical currently employs more than 350 people throughout their 55 offices in Michigan and Indiana, including four new open positions at the Saline office. Rx Optical has plans to open a new location in Kalamazoo this fall.
“We have been serving the Michigan community for more than 70 years, providing hands-on solutions at our in-house laboratory and locations,” said Jepson. “This new Saline office will allow us to support the industrial eyecare safety needs of many local manufacturing, municipal, and service businesses in the area. We put our patients first and strive for continuous improvements in order to earn their trust and confidence.”
Rx Optical participates with vision insurance plans from local businesses and will submit insurance claims on patients’ behalf. Those without insurance may also qualify for Rx Optical’s Vision Advantage Program. A full list of major insurance providers that Rx Optical partners with can be found here.
